Winter Shelter

From December through March, Lancaster County Food Hub organizes an overnight Winter Shelter for single women and women with children at St. Mary’s Church located at 119 S. Prince Street. The shelter provides a warm, safe dry place to sleep as well as showers and lockers. Women with children sleep in a separate area for the comfort of all guests. Once open, Winter Shelter runs seven days a week from 7:30 PM to 8 AM.

How Saint James Plays a Role

Each winter season, volunteers from Saint James help staff the winter shelter. Volunteers are needed during the early evening to set up, greet, register and help people settle in. We also need volunteers overnight to assist and often—just to listen.
